Stocking filler ideas

By | July 28, 2017

I know, you’re thinking “it’s July, why is she writing about stocking fillers?!?” Well, I’m a great one for seeing things that may be suitable for Christmas in sales/shops,  buying them and squirrelling them away (and more often than not, forgetting where I’ve put them!). Recently we’ve been sent a few items that would make […]

I Want To Ride My (Gtech) Bicycle #review 

By | July 10, 2017

Has that got anyone singing the Queen song? Now firmly stuck in my head! Regular readers will be aware that I had both-feet surgery and am due for two more (thankfully) separate operations this year, which has totally shattered my wellbeing for obvious reasons. What I’m trying not to mention too much is the nerve damage […]

Upping our magnesium levels with MAG365

By | June 16, 2017

As regular readers of my blogs may be aware, life is never boring parenting two autistic children, it can feel draining and I have to admit, combine the stresses of everyday life with my post-operation complications and the fact I have two more scheduled for this year, it can all lead to quite a frazzled […]

Bidvine – doing the research for you 

By | June 14, 2017

I’m the sort of person who likes to plan, as much as I can, this is not only necessary for my two autistic children but it makes it easier for me if I make lists of “to do’s”,  not only for myself as a blogger but, as I come up to the first of two […]

There are a lot of websites to choose from and I was pleased when RedCandy got in touch to see if I’d like a browse through their website and see if anything took our fancy. Firstly […]

Bringing back memories with @prestigeflowers

By | June 9, 2017

Just like the first few lines or chords in music, a certain smell can suddenly transport you elsewhere. Some can be unpleasant (for example, I couldn’t walk past a butcher’s shop when pregnant with T) and some can be rather nice (the smell of fresh strawberries on a market stall – mmmm, “pick your own”), […]

What was inside our Charming Candle? #notjustacandle

By | June 4, 2017

A couple of weeks ago, D reached the grand age of 13.  I know! Where HAS the time gone? She was extremely excited about becoming a teenager, but not a “naughty teenager” (her words). I enjoyed looking back in a blog post, she has taught me so much about issues I might otherwise not have known about […]

Innovo – Restore The Floor Product Review #RestoreTheFloor

By | July 25, 2016

“Bounce on the trampoline with me, Mumma! Come on!” words that I’d hear in previous summers and make excuses for, because I knew that I’d potentially regret it. It wasn’t a majorly huge problem for me, I’d just add in a box of liners for every shop but my pelvic floor weakness meant that I […]

By | January 25, 2015

In my first post on our review of Farrow and Ball paint, I answered some specific questions posed by Mumsnet. This second post will show our results and our feedback on the paint we received. I have chosen a specific couple of walls to feature here as these are the least “busiest”, as the room […]
